Sheriff: Boyfriend Arrested in Apparent Murder-for-Hire Slaying of East Bay Dentist Dies by Suicide

Sheriff: East Bay Dentist’s Suicide Suspect Was Her Boyfriend In An Apparent Murder-For-Hire
Deputies at Santa Rita Jail were conducting a route check when they came upon Nelson Chia, 73, of Oakland. Chia was found still and unresponsive by the deputies. According to a statement released by the Sheriff’s Office, “Jail medical professionals and emergency medical responders promptly attempted life-saving measures; however, tragically, their efforts were unsuccessful.”
There is no evidence of foul play or any other questionable activity, and it appears that Chia took his own life in the holding cell with only one other inhabitant. Sheriff’s detectives have begun looking into the circumstances surrounding the death.
The fatal shooting of an East Bay dentist appears to have been a contract killing. Officials stated on Friday that the shooting death of a well-known dentist that occurred in August in Oakland’s Little Saigon seems to be a murder-for-hire, and they added that two suspects had been arrested in connection with the case. Velena Jones reports.
Police believe that Chia and Hasheem Bason, who is 33 and from Stockton, were hired to kill Dr. Lili Xu. Earlier on Friday, the Oakland Police Department made the announcement that they had arrested Chia and Bason in connection with the death of Dr. Xu.
On August 21, Xu was walking in the 1000 block of Fifth Avenue in Oakland when he was shot and died. She was a highly known dentist who practiced out of offices in both Oakland and Castro Valley and had recently reached sixty years old.
The murder of Xu was caught on camera by the monitoring system. In the video, there was a shot of a white car pulling up next to the black sedan that Xu was in. A person who was observed exiting the white automobile raced up to Xu’s vehicle and began firing at it.
Watch as the police make an arrest in the fatal shooting of a dentist in Oakland’s Little Saigon neighborhood. On Friday, the officials in Oakland presented details regarding the deadly shooting of a well-known dentist in the neighborhood of Little Saigon in Oakland.
According to the authorities, Chia was the mastermind behind the murder, while Bason was the one who carried it out after waiting for Xu. Aside from the assertion that the murder of Xu was motivated by financial gain, investigators have not disclosed any specific details regarding the motivation.
District Attorney Nancy O’Malley of Alameda County stated that “this crime was a personal crime committed against the victim and not a crime of race or a crime of hate,” with the exception of the hatred that the defendant had toward his girlfriend. “This crime was a personal crime committed against the victim,” she said.
